Security agencies in Ghana and Burkina Faso are on a manhunt for some persons suspected to be terrorists hiding in Fatchu in the Sissala West District.
The information available to the Sissala West District Police Command indicates that the suspected terrorists may have crossed the Burkina Faso border into Ghana on Wednesday, September 27 at about 11:45 in the morning.
One of the suspects is reported to be a wanted person in Burkina Faso.
“The hideout of the suspects was raided and items including a Ghanaian voter ID card, two (2) mobile phones, an unspecified number of ammunition, clothing, and eight bicycles among others were found”.
The District Police Command added that a search into the recovered mobile phones of the suspects uncovered pictures of men dressed in terrorist regalia of which one young man of about forty (40) years bears the same resemblance to a wanted terrorist in Burkina Faso.
The security services in Gwollu have been notified of this development and are currently conducting patrols intermittently in and around Fatchu.
The suspected terrorist in the troupe is identified as Diallo Noufou by Burkina Faso security agencies and had a Ghanaian voter ID card bearing the name Abdulai Ibrahim.
